Skype Plans Mobile Version

More news in the same vein as the iTunes phone—Skype CEO Niklas Zennstrom announced plans to move Skype onto mobile handsets. This is very interesting brinksmanship because a free—or low cost—high-quality VOIP system on smartphones would be a massive threat to standard cell providers.

Zennstrom was vague, saying that the new mobile version may appear on embedded Linux, Windows Smartphone, or Symbian.
